Only six fillies and mares were entered for Saturday's $150,000 Santa Barbara H (G2) at Santa Anita, undoubtedly due to the presence of
likely odds-on choice TUSCAN EVENING (Ire) (Oasis Dream [GB]), who has virtually
owned the local turf course during her racing career. The Jerry Hollendorfer
trainee has won six times and placed third twice in eight attempts locally, and
enters on a four stakes-race win streak in Arcadia, California.
